    Is this reno viable? First time!

    Main advantage here from what i see is that you will be creating work for your brother. Electricians tend to be very handy and are one of the smarter trades. So he can probably do most of the jobs. If you have $70 000 worth of work that u can put his way, then thats awesome. Potential...

    The Next Project Reno

    Thanks. I'm taking some days off of work to get stuck into the project. Big list of jobs to do on the place. You walk in and you're just surrounded by jobs to do. But one bite at a time I guess. Here's my awesome... $6.25m2 tiles I got off of gumtree. Not doing a very extensive reno...

    Polished Porcelain Tiles

    I always buy 1 box of tiles for spares when I purchase new tiles. It's easy to knock out a tile or two if it's cracked or damaged and replace, just difficult to source an exact replacement years later. If you ever see damaged tiles in a property you can always ask if the owner has any spares...

    Calculating how long left to pay off HECS

    My 4 year psych degree cost $24 000. Because of the way the tax free portion of my salary sacrificed income gets grossed up for hecs calculations, I end up paying a heap of hecs. In almost 4 years I've got the debt down to $11 200. Will be payed off in 2 more years :)
